. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now

jay carney finally acknowledged yesterday that to some extent that promise is being broken. watch this. >> so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that doesn't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that is substandard. martha: meanwhile republican senator ted cruz, raising concerns over people not only losing their current insurance, but losing their jobs over obamacare. watch this. >> one. real problems with obamacare is people all over the country are losing their health insurance because of obamacare. you've got millions of people who are losing their jobs, who are being forced into part-time work, who are seeing health insurance premiums skyrocket and whose insurance is being canceled right now because of obamacare. listen -- >> any other issue but you chose this one? >> it is number one job killer in the country. martha: now we're starting to see the actual effects of all of this in numbers with hundreds of thousands of peopl

house spokesman jay carney today, and chief congressional correspondent be mike emanuel is live on capitol hill, that's where we given. mike? >> reporter: well, jon, good afternoon. the way the law has been interpreted here on capitol hill, leadership aides and committee aides of relevant committees would be exempt from obamacare, would be allowed to stay on their current federal benefits. some lawmakers are trying to intercept the law more broad -- interpreted the law more broadly to try and exempt more staffers to keep them on the federal land. but in a recent fox news poll, 92% think members of congress and their staffs should be required to live under the laws passed for the american people. but for lawmakers who oppose obamacare don't want anybody to live under it, some say this is a mess. >> my own staff has tried to go on the system, and they're given a raw number, but they don't know if they're buying dental care, they can't tell if they're buying health care, and when they click to the page that says here's the details of the plan you're buying, there's to -- there's no
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
for these cancellationss and the white house reportedly is saying shot up. jay carney says that is preposterous but that report is out there. what do you say? judge napolitano: the white house and the president should not have the power to punish them if they don't shut up, but they do have the power because the affordable health care act has given the president such wiggle room, such play in the joints, such areas where the government can establish regulations to govern certain areas, he can use that discretion and that power to punish helping jurors that criticize him. that is reprehensible given the first amendment, reprehensible given the american value of individualism. stuart: strong arm the banks into $137 billion worth of settlements never gone to court. judge napolitano: even you have become an individualist. stuart: but the mean even me? thank you very much as always. do you remember the 1985 bears? i actually do. one of the most celebrated nfl teams in history won a super bowl despite a huge rift between the two principal coaches. we have the man who wrote the book on the bears. he i
any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalization, no, you know, let's go back to where insurance companies could throw you off whenever they want. maybe slap a annual limit on you. or, a lifetime limit. exclude you if you have a preexisting condition. charge you double if you're a woman, like that's, you know the world prior to the affordable care act that there, they want to return to because there has been no alternative offered. >> reporter: but the president's critics say setting minimum standards for health care coverage is hardly in the spirit of his promise if you like your plan you can keep it. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says some of the standards themselves are questionable. he read a letter from one of his constituents on the senate floor. >> he is not happy about this at all. especially given the fact that a plan on the obamacare exchanges will dramatically drive up his insurance costs from $400 a month to more than $700 a month with zero sub
media just happens to be shocked by it as well. >> sure. >> jay carney is like wrestling cats, as they say. they used to want to focus on ed henry. now you have every reporter putting up their hand and you can't say, well, fox, the people at fox. now he's got to play it straight and answer these questions. and the president's going to have trouble shaking his repeated statements about keeping their plan. because the people he wrote were grandfathered into the plan, you can't force an insurance company to continue to insure someone if their math doesn't add up. >> because they squeezed the language in there with obamacare, whereas before they say, you could keep your insurance. no one will have to get out of it. they have to keep you. well, no, there is language in there that says if they even change their co-pay to $5 more, they can drop you. >> they're out. >> that's what's happening. >> a total escape from responsibility here in terms of keeping those that are insured and we're going to maybe hear some answers from kathleen sebelius. who knows? those that are going to questi
. jay carney was asked about, hey, what's the number going to be? he is now tamping down expectations, as well he should. watch. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is yes because that was always going to be the case. >> oh really? how come the first thing you said the reason you can't get on is the high volume. and how many democrats do we hearsay there is high volume because people really love this thing. six really loved it the first day. >> how can you assess low if you don't have a number? that is what is interesting as well. they're saying we don't have the information but it's low. you must be looking at something to give that low assessment. >> the website has been disastrous. i've got to give the president credit, he said seven weeks ago, he asked is it ready and they told him it was ready. again punting and blaming, not taking responsibility. that's the vice president trying to save the president, who has been busy lately, i guess, all summer. now let's talk about the other element to this. the report we told you about yesterday that insurance companies
